New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Tuesday that the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) will enrol 1.2 crore new members in 2021. 65 lakh people between the ages of 18 and 25 were among them. PM Modi was responding to the President's Upper House Motion of Thanks.

PM also stated that, in addition to an increase in EPFO enrolments, India's hiring trends have improved since the initial COVID-19 wave. According to the most recent NASSCOM report, India has produced over 27 lakh employment in the Information Technology (IT) sector.

He also lauded the agriculture and micro, small, and medium businesses (MSMEs) sectors for creating jobs. He went on to say that productivity was high and the government made record purchases. Farmers received a greater MSP, according to the Prime Minister, and the money was deposited directly into their bank accounts.

"The MSME sector employs the most people. We have an agriculture sector as well. We made certain that no obstacles stood in their way. As a result, production was high, and the government made record purchases. MSP was increased for farmers. They got money straight into their bank accounts," Prime Minister Modi remarked in the upper house on Tuesday.
